their plans are to make it incompatable with ffmpeg (see depreciated
commit). syntax ala -vn -an -sn is gone already. which doesnt make sense
since that is incompatable with ffmpeg and breaks old scripts. if they
were going to cripple ffmpeg why not just continue crippling it and not
make a new file ?

do you want an 'ffmpeg2' that needs its own manual ? might get
confusing. if you merge the aconv incompatable-to-ffmpeg changes to
aconv, you will need a new manual for it. if you dont merge those, then
it will just be a copy of ffmpeg, and then why have aconv copy?

my brain hurts and this is v4 of this email. good luck.
